1. Apply Gelish Foundation and cure.
2. Apply Gelish in Mint Icing and cure after each layer (apply two). Leave one finger free to create your foamy beer accent nail.
3. On your free finger, apply Gelish in Arctic Freeze and cure
4. Apply Gelish in Bronzed on top of the white nail, cure and apply again for a total of two Bronzed layers.
5. With a dotting tool, create three dots in random positions on the tip of the Bronzed nail and connect with curved lines, filling in all spaces to create the look of the top of a beer. Cure.
6. Apply Gelish Top It Off, cure, and clean with Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil.

St Patrick's Day - Shamrock Shake-up - Elizabeth Garcia 2

 

1. Apply Gelish Foundation and cure.

2. Apply a coat of Gelish in Mint of Spring and cure. Repeat with second coat.
3. Do not clean. Take your wedge sponge and apply Gelish in Mint Icing on the corner of your sponge and press it softly on the nail tip. Repeat twice and cure both times.
4. Apply Gelish in Bronzed to your sponge and press softly to the middle section of your nail tip towards your cuticle.
5. Apply more of Bronzed to your sponge and press softly applying only in the middle section of the nail, creating another ombre layer with your glitter gel polish.
6. Apply Mint Icing once more on your sponge and apply it only to the edge of your nail, making it the darkest section of your nail.
7. Apply Gelish Top It Off, cure, and clean with Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil.

 

Lucky Charms

St Patrick's Day - Lucky Charms - Elizabeth Garcia

1. Apply Gelish Foundation and cure.
2. Apply Gelish in Dear Johnny Green and cure. Apply once more and cure again.
3. For the dots, you can either create them using Gelish in Bronzed, or, use Gelish Structure Gel as a glue. To do so, drop a circular dot on the center of each nail (do not cure). Then, place a gold rhinestone stud on top of each and cure.
4. Use Bronzed along with a dotting tool and place more dots and studs on both sides next to the center stud. Repeat on all fingers.
6. Darken dots by adding another coat and cure.
7. Apply Gelish Top It Off, cure and clean with Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil.
